Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back LeGarrette Blount could be out "several weeks", according to a report. The report comes from a Lakeland, Florida paper, The Ledger's Rick Brown. Typically the type of injury that Blount reportedly has, has a 4-6 week recovery period.
Local radio broadcaster J.P. Peterson first reported Blount had suffered an MCL Grade 2 tear and would be out for four-to-six weeks. Normally Grade 2 tears takes four to six weeks to heal according to UCSF.com.
If Blount is out, the Buccaneers would turn to the services of Earnest Graham, who's been taking the majority of first team reps in practice. Graham had already been getting touches on third downs and passing situations, but now it looks like he will carry the full load while Blount is recovering from his injury.
